10th Annual Norwegian-American Defense Conference

Updated: May 3

The 10th Anniversary Norwegian-American Defense Conference, themed Industry as Deterrence, took place on Thursday, April 4th at the House of NADIC in Arlington, VA. 


The program included notable speakers, such as Dr. Laura D. Taylor-Kale, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Industrial Base Policy, Ms. Barbara McQuiston, Chair of NATO DIANA Board of Directors and Congressman Rob Wittman (R-VA-01), Vice Chair of HASC, and the Norwegian Deputy Defence Minister Ms. Anne Marie Aanerud.


To mark the 75th-anniversary date of the North Atlantic Treaty, another highlight of the program was the conversation on the topic of NATO at 75 and the Challenges and Opportunities the organization faces at this milestone. We were honored to welcome former SACEUR General (ret) Tod D. Wolters and Rear Admiral (ret.) Lars Saunes to a conversation on this timely issue, moderated by Major General (ret) Randy "Church" Kee, Director of the Ted Stevens Center for Arctic Security Studies.
